Blaming their management is exactly right. They chose to immediately announce a refund instead of simply saying hold your tix and we'll figure out when to reschedule later. They didn't. But when it came to the TX shows, they were immediately rescheduled. LP's management could've found one open date at either FedEx field, Nationals Ballpark, Patriot Center, DAR Constitution Hall, MB&T Bank stadium (in baltimore) or other times in Verizon center. Again, they didn't.
And yes, I was at that show 2-3 years ago when they played (at the time Nissan Pavillion) during Projekt Revolution. I meant eight years from this year. I will be thrilled to be proven wrong and hope they will be back this year. But I doubt it. So untill I'm proven wrong, or untill LP comes out and says "we'll be back to DC this year" I stand by the at least 5-8 years until they return. So, looking at their tour schedule, and knowing they will have to do South America, and Asia and Australia, plus the new album, and time off throughout. My timeline is the accurate one.
Another month goes by and LP still hasn't said word one about wether or not they're going to bother to reschedule the cancelled show in our Nation's Capital, Washington, DC. Pretty lame LP. You're management went out of their way to reschedule the TX shows, but couldn't be bothered to make the effort to reschedule or even tell us (and the fans in OH and CT) if you intend to even come back in the near future. Fans in DC are getting sick and tired of bands simply blowing off playing in the Nation's Capital.
And LP, to give you some examples of how bands who care about their fans handle adversity:
Metallica: Hetfield gets burned by a magnesium flame effect. Gets rushed to the hospital, but the band IMMEDIATELY tells fans to hold their tix and then reschedules. They return and play with a guest guitarist in less then a year.
Van Halen: Alex Van Halen gets in a car accident but they tell fans to hold the tix and reschedules the show. They return and Alex plays wearing a neck brack for whiplash. They played an extra long set for having to cancel the original show to.
Ozzy: Suffers from laryngitis and is advised not to play, but he goes out anyways and rocks the stadium (DC btw).
Iron Maiden: Entire band suffers extreme food poisoning in India. SO extreme they need IV fluids between songs, but they still play and rock that stadium.
